Blizzard is preparing to kick off this year’s edition of the Summer Games in Overwatch and just showed off two more signature skins for the event. A couple of heroes are getting their own hot summer looks for the in-game event, which kicks off on August 9.

The hyper-intelligent gorilla Winston gets a baseball-inspired “Catcher Winston” skin with padding and sunglasses. Ana gets a vacation look with the cleverly named “Cabana Ana.” Both are Legendary skins that will become available in loot boxes or for purchase with in-game currency when the event kicks off.

Summer Games will last through August 30. As always, it will unlock special themed skins, along with the exclusive Lucioball event–a game mode reminiscent of Rocket League. Meanwhile, Twitch Prime is partnering with Blizzard through September 3 for some special loot boxes, including items for the newest hero, Wrecking Ball.

The Summer Games event first began as an homage to the 2016 Olympic games with each character representing their country of origin. Since then, it’s come back in 2017 and again this year, with more of a general summer theme.
